Universal Replacement Refractory Panel 24" high X 28"wide x 1" thick

If your current fireplace firebrick lining has cracks of 1/4" or more, you should replace the panels for safety reason.

These replacement fireplace refractory panels are engineered for extreme heat, have excellent thermal properties, and can be used in prefabricated and zero clearance gas or wood burning fireplaces. Panels are 3/4" thick, fiber reinforced and can be *cut to fit sizing requirements. They can be used as a left, right, bottom (hearth) or back panel, and are tapered on one edge for a finished look when used as a left or right panel. If one panel does not cover the area you have, you should order multiple panels and cut to fit.

*Brick imprint measures 2 1/4" x 7 1/2"

*Panels are easily cut with a skill saw and masonry blade.   We do not cut to custom sizes.
 
*Place item in cart to get shipping charges.
 

*In the unlikely event you receive cracked or damaged brick, you will need to eMAIL a picture of the damaged product. We will ship a replacement and we do not need the damaged product returned.

THE NATURE OF CRACKS
With the heating and cooling of refractory on both masonry and factory-built fireplaces, you can expect some minor cracks to occur....it's just the nature of things. Small hairline cracks in the refractory will almost always be present after repeated firings. When these fine cracks occur, you can rest assured that the homeowner can enjoy the fireplace with absolutely no danger! In fact, there is metal behind the refractory on a factory-built fireplace; therefore, even if the cracks get larger, the fireplace will still operate safely.

WHEN TO REPLACE REFRACTORY
One should consider replacing the refractory when large cracks occur. If the crack is larger than 1/16 inch (thickness of a nickel) the refractory should be changed. Also, if the refractory starts to crumble and fall apart in chunks, you should replace it. Refractory replacement on a factory-built fireplace is a relatively simple task, which is usually executed by simply unscrewing a bracket, removing the original refractory and installing the new panel. Repairs are much more difficult on a masonry fireplace because experienced brick masons must use special materials to patch the cracks...and it's much more expensive.

PREVENTION
To prevent the problem from happening in the first place, the homeowner should "condition" the refractory in a new fireplace by building relatively small fires for the first few burns and then gradually working up to larger fires. When adding wood to the fire, one should use caution not to throw logs into the firebox, which may hit and damage the back refractory. In almost all cases, the back refractory shows the most signs of wear and tear because it takes the most abuse from heat and log impact. Very rarely do side refractory panels need to be replaced.

CONCLUSION
As stated previously in this paper, factory built fireplace refractory is a highly engineered product, which if treated with respect, will give the homeowner many years of problem free service. Small cracks are to be expected. If fine cracks appear, it's not a safety issue! Consider replacing the refractory when large cracks are present, pieces of refractory start to break off or if you wish to change refractory for aesthetic reasons.
